ST. LOUIS, MO KTVI – Scott Air Force Base has posted a warning to Facebook about a protest this Friday at the St. Louis Arch. The “Day of Rage” protests are planned at the same time in cities across the United States. Anonymous is calling for protests on Friday, July 15th to stand with the Black Lives Matter movement.

Scott Air Force Base posted this message to Facebook:

“Please be advised that the Air Force Office of Special Investigations has posted a safety warning not to be at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 15 due to potential protests and criminal activity. Please be safe and avoid this area during that time.”

The protests are in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and the victims of police brutality. It is a reaction to last week’s officer involved shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. This is part of a release Anonymous posted to YouTube on Saturday:

“We are calling on a collective day of rage. A day of action centered around civil disobedience and the right to protest.

To police departments across the United States. We are not your enemy. However, it is in your hands if you want us to stay that way or not. We will not be silenced and we will not be intimidated.

To the St. Anthony and the Baton Rouge Police Departments, we’ve already launched attacks on your virtual infrastructure. We are prepared to release every single piece of evidence that will expose your corruption and blatant disregard for human life.

Once again we are calling upon the citizens of the United States, in conjunction with the Black Lives Matter movement as well as other civil rights activists, to participate in a day of action against the injustices of corrupt officers. On Friday, July 15th, we will all flood the streets at strategic locations in order to maximize our voice. The locations and times will be located in the description below. Tell your family, tell your friends. We will change the world together. Our freedom depends on it.”

The whole thing is a little confusing. Will there be protests across the country on Friday?  An Anonymous Twitter account says that there is no “Day of Rage.”

Snopes dug into the likelihood that there will be a “National Day of Rage” planned by Anonymous. They point out that this event is, “Virtually identical to one that was circulated two years earlier after the shooting of teenager Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. As we pointed out back then, one of the key aspects of Anonymous is its amorphous nature and overall lack of central organization; as such, anyone can initiate an Anonymous “operation,” and none is ever officially sanctioned by any particular portion of the collective.”

But, this is the video Anonymous posted to YouTube last weekend. Warning: Some of the images and language used in this video may be offensive to some viewers:
